REIDSVILLE, N.C. (AP) – More than 150 cats and other small animals have been taken from a house in Rockhingham County.

No charges have been filed. The owner’s name has not been released.
Deputies say many of the animals were underweight, had respiratory infections and were infested with parasites.
The animals are being treated at the county animal shelter. Those who recover will be available for adoption.
